Telluride Art + Architecture( A & A) revealed the lineup of speakers for the July 11 – 16, 2023 event. Ann Barker, director of the event, describes sustainability, materiality and connection to nature as key themes in the work of the guest architects presenting. The festival, recognized for the immersive art and design experiences shared during its home tour, is also now a launchpad for architecture, landscape and design books.

This year, A & A presents three books: July 13, CLB Architects: “Inspired by Place”; July 15th the work of Shigeru Ban: “Timber in Architecture and “Surface Design: Material Landscapes.” In addition, discussions with architects, artists, landscape architects, designers and manufacturers will illuminate the intersection between the themes.

Speakers include architect Farnaz Mansuri of de-spec; artist Alex Amini;  landscape architect Mike Albert of Design Workshop; architect Greg Papay of Lake | Flato; CCY architects Mike Kennedy and Jenny Trumble; NO ARCHITECTURE’S Andrew Heid; Aybars Asci of Efficiency Lab for Architecture; and Telluride-based landscape architect Beth Bailis of Caribou Design.

The book and architect discussions are free and open to the public. For those in the industry and in cooperation with the Colorado American Institute of Architects (AIA), continuing education sessions will be offered by CCY Architects, Henry built and product partners Altitude Control Technology, Delta Millworks, Dornbracht, and Trustile.

“Last summer we had the opportunity to offer the global launch of Rocky Mountain Modern and the monographs of several architecture firms designing in Telluride,” said Ann Barker. “These sessions were well-attended and the audiences very engaged in the discussions. Now we have people reaching out to us. We are becoming the place for lovers of architecture to gather.”

Explore the Telluride Art + Architecture schedule and and immerse yourself in Telluride’s vibrant creative community through a week of events that culminates in a weekend of exquisite garden and home tours featuring a unique fusion of art, design and culinary delights.

Each stop on the tour will offer a feast for the senses, spectacular design, delicious bites and beverages, music, poetry and fine art. All carefully curated within outdoor sanctuaries and stunning homes.
